1 Kings 22:6

Context
22:6 So the king of Israel assembled about four hundred prophets and asked them, “Should I attack Ramoth Gilead or not?” 1  They said, “Attack! The sovereign one 2  will hand it over to the king.”

1 Kings 22:13

Context
22:13 Now the messenger who went to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the prophets are in complete agreement that the king will succeed. 3  Your words must agree with theirs; you must predict success.” 4 

1 tn Heb “Should I go against Ramoth Gilead for war or should I refrain?”

2 tn Though Jehoshaphat requested an oracle from “the Lord” (יְהוָה, Yahweh), they stop short of actually using this name and substitute the title אֲדֹנָי (’adonai, “lord; master”). This ambiguity may explain in part Jehoshaphat’s hesitancy and caution (vv. 7-8). He seems to doubt that the four hundred are genuine prophets of the Lord.

3 tn Heb “the words of the prophets are [with] one mouth good for the king.”

4 tn Heb “let your words be like the word of each of them and speak good.”
